Clarence Street Build

Design Brief

Clarence Street build provides a family home by elevating the build up to two stories to gain more space on a small suburban site whilst gaining views to Mt Wellington. With children’s bedrooms downstairs, the master bedroom and living spaces are upstairs for noise separation, allowing the children to play with a connection to the garden. This house is tucked behind an existing house on the same block so creating a sense of arrival was important. The stairwell is emphasised through design of bespoke windows surrounded by rich spotted gum timber.
